  • We didn’t got traditional or unique. We chose 2 boy names and 2 girl names when I first fell pregnant, just names we both liked. We had a boy first and then a girl, so all our favourite names were used

  • We went with 2 very different, and uncommon names. There is definitely no one else at their school with those names. I think it is nice to have some unique names.

  • We have an Isaac. Doesn’t get much more traditional than that.

  • We went traditional. You just have to be comfortable with whatever you choose.

  • My first was traditional but my second was definitely original no one else will have his name

  • Traditional for my first – Patrick (now 17) It’s his Dad and Grandad’s middle name and I loved it so it fit well. I notice there are lots of Patrick’s and Paddy’s being born now – I wonder if Offspring has anything to do with that? :)

    Lauren for my daughter (16) as it wasn’t common back then and Ioved it.

    Carter – more modern – for our third (5)

  • We went traditional, but I think it’s personal so whatever you choose would be great.

  • I chose an original for my first born Andreanna and my father inlaws name for for my son Theodore.

  • We chose traditional names Jack and Audrey and our middle child is Miles… which is not so traditional

  • All traditional normal names. Theyre orginal as a person and dont need an unusual name having to always correct peoples pronunciation.

  • I choose two different names. India for my eldest girl (which is pretty original, although there’s now a few Indianna’s around!) My other daughter is Sofia which is a pretty common name. My best friend just had a baby girl called Autumn!

  • My kids have original names, only one name, no middle names.

  • We have four children with traditional names. In regards to middle names they have some family meaning. My eldest has my first name as her middle name (as she was born on my birthday) my twin girls have both their grand mothers first names as their middle names and my son has his grandfathers (my husbands fathers) name as his middle name.

  • I have four children. They all have names that suit them. My stepdaughter has a very unique name, her father made it up…
    My older two children from a previous relationship have semi traditional names.
    Our youngest (child together) also has quite a unique name, but it was traditional in it’s time.

    It depends on how you feel about names, and if you feel it fits your child. Children can sometimes be nasty, so think about the possibility it could be shortened into a nasty nickname. If you don’t like the abbreviation of a name, it is best to steer clear of it, as it is standard for people to shorten names.

  • My daughter’s name is Cynthia and I picked it out while I was reading a newspaper. After she was born a friend said do you know she reminds me of Cyndi from the Brady Bunch as that is the short version for her name . I said please don’t compare it to her as I’ve never liked the youngest child from the Bradys lol
